Today, I want to touch on about  an important subject: Builder Offering to Pay Off Student Loans for Buyers 

 

Millennials are on track to become the most educated generation in history. This means they are also the generation with the most student debt. Depending on the type of degree earned, as well as the prestige of the institution attended, there are some millennials who graduate college with what equates to a mortgage payment.

For those first-time buyers, and even some move-up buyers, who took advantage of the First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit in 2008, there is an interesting program being introduced by Lennar Home Builders and Eagle Home Mortgage.

“Borrowers with Eagle Home Mortgage’s Student Loan Debt Mortgage Program can direct up to 3% of the purchase price (up to $13,000) to pay their student loans when they buy a new home from Lennar, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders. The contribution doesn’t directly increase the purchase price of the home or add to the balance of the loan.”

The program allows borrowers, whose credit and income requirements qualify, to put down as low as 3% and have a maximum loan amount of $424,100. At the time of closing, Lennar contributes up to 3% to pay down student loans incurred while attending universities, colleges, community colleges, trade schools and other certificate-granting programs.

Jimmy Timmons, President of Eagle Home Mortgage, gave more context about the reasons behind the creation of the program,

“Americans are more burdened than ever by student loans, with $1.3 trillion in outstanding student loans spread out among 42 million borrowers.  

Particularly with millennial buyers, people who want to buy a home of their own are not feeling as though they can move forward. Our program is designed to relieve some of that burden and remove that barrier to owning a home.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, “housing observers said other builders are likely to look to mimic the program, which could help lure more of the critical first-time-buyer segment into home purchases.”

 

Bottom Line

If you are one of the many millennials who may have delayed purchasing your first home, or feel stuck in a house that no longer fits your needs, there are programs and options available to help you achieve your dream!

Henderson - Las Vegas Nevada / Which Homes Have Increased in Value the Most?

Henderson - Las Vegas Nevada / Which Homes Have Increased in Value the Most? 

 

Home sellers have lots of options when is time to sell their properties, however there is no magic formula that will guarantee in achieving the best and highest price possible for their homes. This is why I like to partner with my clients to guide them through the complexities of selling their homes. I assembled a team of true professionals with experience, dedication and strong communication skills to help ensure a successful and profitable sale of your home.

 

Today I want to bring a very important point that relates to the sale of your home, Which Homes Have Increased in Value the Most?

 

Home values have risen dramatically over the last twelve months. The latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors puts the annual increase in the median existing-home price at 5.6%. CoreLogic, in their most recent Home Price Index Report, revealed that national home prices have increased by 6.7% year-over-year. 

CoreLogic broke appreciation down ever further into four price ranges which gives a more detailed view than simply looking at the year-over-year increases of the national median home price.

The chart below shows the four tiers and each one’s growth from July 2016 to July 2017 (the latest data available).

It is important to pay attention to how prices are changing in your local market. The location of your home is not the only factor in determining how much it has appreciated over the course of the last year. Lower priced homes have appreciated at greater rates than homes at the upper ends of the spectrum, due to demand from first-time home buyers and baby boomers looking to downsize.

 

Bottom Line

If you are planning on listing your home for sale in today’s market, let’s get together to go over exactly what’s going on in your area and your price range.

We know that technology alone won’t sell your home. Face-to-face interaction provides the advantage to sell your home-and you won’t have to worry about a thing. The details will be handled with care and constant communication, to ensure the marketing and sale of your home go smoothly.

Caring for your Pets during New Years Eve

 

Lamentably, numerous creatures are startled by firecracker shows which can in a roundabout way posture dangers to creature causing so as to wellbeing them to take flight and attempt to get away from the noisy commotions. Canines specifically may fear firecrackers and numerous attempt to flee, here and there harming themselves all the while. We get calls from troubled proprietors whose pooches have fled. A large number of these canines can wind up a few kilometers from home. Mutts have been known not through fortified glass windows to escape uproarious commotions, and effectively hop over, or burrow their way under wall that would ordinarily contain them.

 

What Steps can I take?

 

For Dogs

 

-Prepare early.

• Talk to your vet about the treatment options available for managing noise phobias – ask them about any new treatment options.

• Take your dog out for exercise before the fireworks start e.g. reasonably long walk, then after a couple of hours you can feed a meal. A tired and well-fed dog will likely be less anxious during the night. If you can, stay home to be with your pet.

• Let your dog be with you and try to be calm and normal. Avoid fussing over your pet excessively but try to engage them in normal activities such as playing. Reward your dog for their calm behaviour, rewards include giving dog treats and  their favourite dog toy.

• Close the blinds/curtains, create a comfortable hiding place and allow your dog to go there to feel safe, put on some music or the TV to help mask the noise outside, and distract your dog with games and food.

• Dogs who panic can choke themselves on a collar or lead, so never tether your dog during these times and never use a choke chain to restrain your dog.

• Make sure your dog is micro-chipped and that your contact details are up to date on the microchip register. Also ensure they are wearing an ID tag so they can be easily returned if they accidentally escape.

• Direct supervision is important to help prevent injury or escape. If you cannot supervise your dog on the night consider making alternative arrangements so your dog will be supervised by a responsible person directly or consider boarding your dog so they will be safe.

 

 

For Cats

Felines ought to be kept inside amid firecrackers shows. Most felines will discover some place safe to shroud and will more often than not wander out when the commotion stops. Ensure you feline is microchipped and your points of interest are progressive on the microchip register in the event that they meander and get to be lost.

Guidelines to consider when arranging furniture

As a general rule, furniture should be arranged for comfort, convenience and attractiveness. In arranging your furniture, keep in mind these principles or guidelines.

1. Use or utility. Every object in the room must be placed for convenience and comfort. Group furniture according to use. Those pieces that are naturally used together should be together. A sofa, two arm chairs and a long low table are grouped together.  When you entertain visits or when your family sits down together to converse, this arrangement would be very convenient.

Furniture should be arranged to meet the needs and tastes of the people living in the house. In a house where there are children, shelves for toys should be provided. A study table with a table lamp near the bookcase makes a useful arrangement when there are students among the members of the family.

 

2.Economy of space. Do not use large heavy furniture in a small room. They will occupy too much space. Double purpose furniture saves on space. Instead of just a small table, have shelves under the table. It can serve as a place for a radio. The shelves can be used for books and magazines.

Never put large pieces of furniture across a corner. But small pieces of furniture like a small chair or small table may be placed across a corner for interest. It does not use up much space. Large pieces should be placed parallel to the wall. Leave a space between the wall and the furniture. Arrange the pieces in such a way that they need not be moved from their places for cleaning. When furniture touch the wall, both the wall and the furniture get scratched.

 

3. Beauty. Furniture arrangement should add to the attractiveness of the room. Every arrangement is more interesting if there is a center of interest. Furniture may be placed with the radio or television set as center of interest.

All joining in furniture should be clean, tight-fitting, difficult to detect, and put together with screws instead of nails. Drawers should slide smoothly. There also should be stops to prevent them from being pulled all the way out. Backs of the furniture should be attractively finished- and not, as in cheap furniture, made of heavy cardboard. The hardware, such as knobs, pulls and handles, should be firmly attached, tastefully designed, and in keeping with the quality of the piece it adorns. Brass and other metal hardware should be rust- resistant and tarnish proof.

 

4.Unity. Furniture of the same kind should be grouped together and furniture used for certain activity should be grouped together. In the bedroom, the clothes closet and the dresser should be near each other. Group furniture of similar heights together.

5.Variety. Furniture need not be in sets. Different kinds of furniture may be grouped together if they will be used together. A small piece of furniture may be placed across a corner. Large pieces should be near each other. Group furniture of similar heights together.

5 Things you need to Accomplish Before Moving in a New House

 

Happy New Year!

 

Moving in a new house can be diificult and at this time of the year, after holidays might be the best time moving in. Before you go into the specifics of moving in and buying furniture. You might want to consider the following things below to make sure your home is ready.

 

1. Make sure the electrical outlets and plates are installed- Most old houses have old connectiors or swutches, especially for those homes that have been renovated or have been repaired. Mismatched outlets and wires can cause accidents like electric shock or even fire.

 

 

2. Change the color of walls/ ceilings. repaint- hire a repainter as this might take alittle more time to do. If you are short on time make sure that before you move in the walls and ceilings were scrubbed clean and then repaint later.

 

3. Change the locks- get new keys on the exterior doors- As soon as the closing paperwork is done ensure that all locks and keys are changed. Consider that the previous owners or realtors may have access to the previous keys and that everyone that may have access can get easily in if the locks are the same.

 

4. Make sure the house is Spick and Span- Hire a helper if you cannot do it yourself. While the previous owners may have left the home clean for you some would not. Even if they do, you will want to clean everything.

 

5. Make sure the mechanical equipment is cleaned and serviced-  Do this as soon as you buy the house. Make sure that the cooling and heating systems are ceaned and other tasks. Always hire a professional to service these things for you, make this a priority.

Mistakes that First Time Home-Buyers- Make

Purchasing your first home can be energizing and astonishing, and terrifying. Yet, knowing the normal slip-ups of first-time purchasers will guarantee you don't make the same ones, and can make the move to "New Home Owner!" that much smoother.

 

 

1. Overspending

 

It’s important to be realistic about what you can afford. The final sale price isn’t the only cost to take into account when owning a home. Houses come with plenty of bills like heating and property taxes, future renovations and occasional unforeseen costs like burst pipes or city trees needing to be trimmed.

 

 

2. Spending too less

 

Yes, this can also be a mistake! If you spend too little on a home that you’ll outgrow quickly, you’ll incur the expense of moving (which can be quite pricey) perhaps before you need to.

 

 

3. Buy from the heart 

 

Beyond any doubt the house is perfect, completely revamped and painted your most loved shade of cream and has an ensuite washroom for each room. Be that as it may, it's on an occupied street and you have three youthful children and two cats who like to keep running outside.

 

 

4. Watch out for Hidden Closing Cost

 

The final sale price of the house isn’t the only cost of buying a home. There are many "closing costs" that should be taken into account when deciding what price range you can afford. Your realtor’s commissions, lawyer fees, transfer taxes and moving costs can all add up.

 

5. Not doing Research

 

Aimlessly purchasing a home can be a major oversight. Whether you're giving careful consideration to your real estate agent and family "who simply LOVE the spot!" or are feeling the weight to make a fast purchase, moving into a house that hasn't been altogether confirmed can be a major, costly, remorseful error.

 

 

Buying a home is really exciting and daunting.  But doing your own due diligence can make the whole process easier, and get you into your dream home with less stress.

 

For your buying concerns getting a good realtor matter the most. With our team you can expect that we find you the right home. Please log on to our website at www.lasvegasfindahome.com. Call us at Nevada Realty Connection and we will help you 7023187228
